Future developments include:

  • Eleve61 – Mercury Advisors has announced the development of a 61-unit luxury condominium development at Channelside Drive and Whiting. More information at
  • 111 N. Meridian – Framework/MTC has announced a mixed-use residential and retail development along Meridian Avenue from Washington Street to Whiting Street.

  • Daniel Corporation is preparing to construct a 19-story 332 unit mixed-use residential tower at the corner of Twiggs Street and North 12th Street just east of the Belle Channelside Apartments.

The Channel District CRA has mobilized a major district-wide infrastructure improvement project to include nine smaller projects to essentially complete the remainder of the drainage and streetscape improvements for the district. To learn more, please visit  

In collaboration with the Downtown CRA, Cumberland Avenue is under construction to be open by December of 2020. This is long awaited connection between Downtown and the Channel District.
